Let's meet the ginger

A bit of its origin and its properties...

Health and Esthetics

As you will see in each of my notes, I like to talk about the origin of the food, why? Because it is very important to know how the plant was born or the food be fruit or vegetable or whatever it is.That's how I inspire myself, imagine myself in the right place and at the right moment, and there I'm going to write.

 Ginger , which has been used in traditional Asian medicine for 2,000 years, is  one of the most important medicinal plants health benefits   , and a seasoning widely used in gastronomy.

It belongs to the same family of turmeric and cardamom.

 It's a rhizome. (easier a root) 

Many will remember the tale of the brothers Hansell and Gretel, how not to remember, that lost in the woods come to the house made of ginger by the evil witch.

Both bread and gingerbread have been in Europe for many years. In England they are very adept at this root. Castillo Gossip says that Queen Elizabeth, daughter of Henry VIII, loves Ginger.

The Romans were the ones who began to use this root, coming from India, by different routes.  Its origin is the tropical and humid forests of South Asia , especially India and China.

Asian cuisine is the one that most uses this root, for all kinds of meals, sauces,  infusions .

Ayurvedic and vegetarian cuisines use it as a seasoning and for preparing their dishes.

Some of the  benefits of ginger  include:

  • Decreases rheumatic and menstrual pains.
  • It is effective against flu and  colds .
  • It improves blood flow, so it prevents cardiovascular diseases.
  • Eliminates dizziness and vertigo.

And there are many more...!!
